candles?

something i read off another forum is making themed hampers for presents. For example, a cinema box could have some dvds, popcorn, a bottle of pop etc, a beauty box could have nice soaps, face masks, you could make a retro sweeties jar? Loads of things you can do with a bit of imagination

hamper ideas here - http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/....html?t=314238

i made a dog walkers one for my mum last year. it had a scarf and gloves, poop scoop and poop bags lol, packages of hot chocolates, and her main present - an ipod and itunes giftcard. we hid it under all the other stuff so she was shocked lol
